Argenta Walther is a dedicated singer of music from the sacred medieval to the modern experimental, living and working in Los Angeles. She performs on a regular basis at some of the city's best-loved venues, including the blue whale, REDCAT, Automata, Saint John's Cathedral and the Museum of Jurassic Technology. Argenta is a frequent guest artist with modern classical, jazz, traditional classical and early music groups including Bach Collegium San Diego, People Inside Electronics, The Alexander Noice Sextet and Southland Ensemble. She is a founder of the contemporary vocal group Accordant Commons, and is one of the directing members of Ensemble Vocatrix, a group dedicated to the music of Hildegard von Bingen.
In the 2017/18 season, Argenta was delighted to perform at Walt Disney Hall for the Noon to Midnight festival along with Southland Ensemble and joined them again to perform Ruth Crawford Seeger's "Three Songs." Ensemble Vocatrix made a mesmerizing debut at the historic Monday Evening Concerts for which they were lauded as singing with "blinding luminosity" by the Los Angeles Times, and Accordant Commons made a return to Automata with an innovative program of modern vocal chamber music.
Argenta is a student of somatic movement and expression and integrates this embodied approach with her work as a music educator and performing artist.
